this too was a gift. this too and that. that too. yes that and this too. this is how we don’t just survive, but thrive (the breakings of the heart). this is how we live and breathe and grow and learn and love (again and maybe even again and one more time again). when we can not only acknowledge, accept and grasp what happened (what happens to the heart) but when we can see it as a gift (truly true) we win (and not the kind of winning where someone loses, but the kind were no matter what happens, we refuse to be reduced and everything, even the darkest darknesses become fuel for good). a present, really, yes this too was a gift…
